Basic Training 1970 with Danny D.

Danny D. Greg A. and I hung out together during basic training
at Fort Knox KY.
Danny was from Ferndale Mi. Greg was from Southfield, and I
was from Royal Oak.
Danny went to Viet Nam, Greg stayed in the states, and I went to
Germany as a Tanker.
I remember meeting his pregnant wife at a gathering during
basic training.
He was a great guy.

Remembering an American Hero

Dear CPL Danny George Drinkard, sir



As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.



May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say 'thank you'; for America, and for those who love you.



With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir



Curt Carter

I'll always remember 20 April 1971

Dan:
What a fine soldier you were. You were one of the best point men in our platoon. Their hasn't been a day in over 30 years that I haven't thought of that day when you along with 3 other angry skipper brother gave it all for our country along with the 15 or so that were wounded including me. How I wish I could have changed things. I was right next to you, why didn't God take me to? Dan, I've relived that day so many times. You were always so brave walking point. You seemed to love it and you were so good at it to. I remember the twins you talked about. You were so proud of them. Dan, we honor you this May 18th at the wall by placing a wreath at the wall. We haven't forgotton you. We will always remember you. You were one of the best soldiers I've had the honor of serving with. You were a true hero.
Honor and Courage
Your Platoon Sergeant;
Stan Dillon

Do not stand at my grave and weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Mary Frye – 1932
